Raiders' Josh Jacobs (knee, illness) not practicing on Thursday

Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs (knee, illness) was a non-participant in Thursday's practice.

What It Means:

Today's absence is more concerning after the Raiders decided to promote Theo Riddick to their active roster. In an underrated matchup against a Los Angeles Chargers' run defense ranked 21st in fantasy points allowed to running backs, expect Jalen Richard, Devontae Booker, and Riddick to form a committee on Sunday if Jacobs is ruled out.

Jacobs' current Week 9 projection includes 18.7 rushing attempts for 81.8 yards and 2.4 receptions for 19.3 yards.
